We'll be open from 9am until 8pm with a few special guest to DJ and play live on the amazing TPI soundsystem so come down, pick up something special and enjoy the vibes!

WINGS - NINETEEN HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE (RADIO EDIT)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A few weeks ago, a mysterious 12" showed up on our doorstep with an even more mysterious edit of Wings' 'Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five' on it. The record sold out within the hour and was flippin' for over £280 on Discogs and Ebay. Now it's back again in the form of a VERY LIMITED 7'' (worldwide exclusive for Phonica Records [100 copies])... The artist behind this edit is revealed on the B side... BE QUICK!



2 Seminal Model 500 (Juan Atkins) reissues on his own Metroplex imprint.

One the best Techno / Electro 12''s from the one and only Juan Atkins finally gets a repress! Recorded back in the mid '80s these records were way ahead of their time and even sound futuristic today. Night Drive defined a sound and a movement. This seminal release inspired a generation in Detroit that went on to define the genre of Techno. The timeless vocal holds its power in 2016 with the same intensity it held in 1986. The Chase (with rewords from Derrick May) also gets a well deserved repress!

 

Larry Levan - Genius Of Time LP [UNIVERSAL]

A unique and never before released collection which demonstrates the remixes and productions Larry Levan carried out when he wasn’t filling the dance floor DJing at the Paradise Garage. Larry Levan was a king of remixing and editing often adding that special “Levan” magic to some huge artists of the time like Gwen Guthrie, Smokey Robinson and Loose Joints amongst others. His studio talents didn’t end there however, as Larry worked with and produced artists such as Grace Jones and David Joseph to name but a few.
